Had a nice time there. They had a lot of different animals, from camels to sheep for petting. You can get in a bird cage and feed the parakeets. Kids really enjoyed it.

So glad you enjoyed your visit to the Lazy L Safari! The Parakeet Jungle where you can feed the parakeets is always a fan favorite! Thanks for visiting!

While not as big as the St. Louis zoo and more expensive for those trying to keep it very budget friendly, but still a cheap several hours everyone will enjoy. You're able to get right up some animals (close enough to pet and feed them).More

Not too far from St. Louis. We loved how friendly the deer are! There are lots of animals to see and you can pet many of them.

Took our 3 year old grandson. He was excited about seeing the animals. He had a blast. I would recommend buying more than one bird stick to feed the parakeets, that was his favorite part.
